The Dunedin Musicians come up from the deep south, set up camp (AKA the ‘Silver Beaver Lodge’) and organise an annual ‘themed come all, get together’. 

The idea is for newcomers and old friends alike to meet, share and enjoy a fun evening, catch up on ol’ goss and meet new people.. 

This event  happens on the Saturday late afternoon, prior to the evening concert.

Dress in your themed attire and come along with a plate of nibbles to share and you own drinks.

2020 describes clarity of vision; this expression illustrates the theme for the Saturday night Silver Beaver Lodge gathering. It is now time to get your visionary gaze on, as ‘Waipara Illuminations” has been cast and The Silver Beaver Lodge request the honour of your appearance at the adult dress-up, drinks and nibbles at the Silver Beaver Lodge of light.

Saturday 11th April at 6pm
There is sure to be plenty of options of light, bright and well lit. Frivolity, creativity and good humour assured again this year!!!
Be part of another insightful cast, you never know which luminary you will rub shoulders with!
Please BYO and nibbles to share
